Description of problem:

When installing web browser plugins such as Flash, the appropriate
directory in FC1 is /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.1/plugins. Unfortunately, the
Epiphany web browser doesn't immediately have access to those plugins.
As documented in the Epiphany FAQ, the fix is to set MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH
to point to the proper directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

epiphany-1.0.4-2

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download Flash from http://www.flash.com/
2. Install it
3. Run Mozilla and see Flash work; run Epiphany and see Flash not work.

Additional info:

I'm not sure where MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH should be set; on my system, I
wanted to be sure it was set correctly for all users, so I added

MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.1/plugins"
export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH

to /etc/profile.

Plugins should be installed in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.  Epiphany and
Mozilla both look there.
